Synopsis

Russie, dans les années 1990. Portée depuis l'enfance par la rigueur et l'exigence du professeur Bojinski, Polina est une danseuse classique prometteuse. Alors qu'elle s'apprête à intégrer le prestigieux ballet du Bolchoï, elle assiste à un spectacle de danse contemporaine qui la bouleverse profondément. C'est un choc artistique qui fait vaciller tout ce en quoi elle croyait. Elle décide de tout quitter et rejoint Aix-en-Provence pour travailler avec la talentueuse chorégraphe Liria Elsaj et tenter de trouver sa propre voie.

Nina Sayers (Natalie Portman), a young dancer in a prestigious New York City ballet company, lives with her mother, Erica (Barbara Hershey), a former dancer herself. The company is preparing to open the season with Swan Lake. The director, Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel), has to cast a new principal dancer after forcing Beth Macintyre (Winona Ryder) into retirement. Thomas wants the same ballerina to portray the innocent, fragile White Swan as well as her dark, sensual twin, the Black Swan. Nina auditions for the part, performing flawlessly as the White Swan, but not quite able to emulate the characteristics of the Black Swan. Although Nina does not do well during her audition, she approaches Thomas and asks him to reconsider her as the lead role. He tells her she is the ideal dancer to cast as the White Swan, but she lacks the passion needed to correctly portray the Black Swan.
